Since the weather was still nice yesterday my plan was to ride over to Woodford county and do a little tour of horse farm country.
I started out on Wildcat road in Anderson county. It is paved at first


Then turns to gravel. There is a nice creek that runs beside the road






Wildcat comes out on the back side of the Wild Turkey Distillery




I crossed the hwy 62 bridge into Woodford county. You can see the old railroad bridge o the right.
There is a great view of the KY River here but no safe place to stop and take a picture.


I turned off of 62 onto Steel road. From there I just kind of wandered around
There are 100's of mile of these kind of roads that criss-cross through the horse farm country





For those of you that have never been here these are horse barns.










This type of riding and scenery goes on for miles. It started to get cold and I wanted to watch the Bronco's game so I
headed for home.

Took a nice bluegrass loop this fall.

Over the north of Taylorsville lake and down Ky-390 to Ky-1941. Neat little towns. Duncan, Cornishville.





Lick Skillet rd. I think...





Through Harrodsburg and Ky-152 across Herrington lake. Up 27


My first time to Camp Nelson.








Looped west of Wilmore. Fords Mill rd. I think.





Bridge on Hifner rd. (I think??)








Stopped by the Jouett historic house and got the tour.





Neat guy. Here's a read...

Then up to Pisgah Pike and over to Old Frankfort Pike to home.











Great ride and much more to explore.

I found Wildcat about a month ago. Met a friend from Wilmore in Lawrenceburg and we started taking every road off 127 that headed east towards the river, working our way south. Most were dead ends but there were some nice views and roads. The east side of the river between Wilmore and the river is a neat place to do that too.

I cut through Lick Skillet down to Sulphur Lick to get to one of my favorite roads 390. From 53 to Harrodsburg it is a racetrack. One of my other favorites is 227 from Owenton down to Stamping Ground mentioned above. All they need is a start and finish line. Good roads to practice your cornering and braking and test the old cardiovascular system.

That's a great pic. My mom grew up on a farm right outside Duncan. I bought a KLR650 back in November and am looking forward to exploring Kentucky backroads as much as I can this year. Thanks for the pics!

I usually spend a lot of seat time in S. Indiana since it's so close and has great roads, but I plan to explore the Commonwealth more. I took a ride playing the KY photo tag and road over on either side of I-75. Wow, not a straight road in the area! Talked to several Cincinnati riders at gas stops and they spend most of their time on our side!




Just in case you haven't seen this thread...

Very cool pics. Thanks for sharing. Ever been to London, KY? I was house looking and found a great house there, but am unsure of the area.

London is a nice town. It's close to the Daniel Boone National Forest where there is good offroad riding at STree and Red Bird.. More info here http://www.fs.fed.us/r8/boone/recreation/ohv_main.shtml
It is also close to Laurel Lake which is really nice if you are into water sports or fishing.
Big South Fork National Recreation Area is just over the mountian at Onieda TN.

Cool...the house I found is actually smack dab in the middle of the Boone National Forest area. Don't know how they did that. Few of them there. Back right up to the lake.

Which Lake? Lot of good riding down there.

Nice area indeed. Although I grew up in the far western part of the state (Paducah), my Dad was from Danville & I have seen a lot of that part of the state over the years. Next time you are in the area check out High Bridge, KY.

Interesting report...thanks for taking the time.

I've got to watch this one. Been in Lawrenceburg for about three years now. I go exploring when I can, but there is never enough time. You are simply marking more places for me to go find. Trip planning, if you will

Love it, Love it, Love it!!

LOL - Well, turns out it must have been sold. I had found it on the realtor.com site, and now it's not there. Was a beautiful 2 story, backed up against the last, with a huge rock/diving platform into the lake. Just under 2 acres, for $288k. Very modern insides.
